My wife and two young sons stayed at this property. We travel extensively around the country for sport staying in short stay rental houses. As you know most have broken items in them, lights don't work and there is never anything in the kitchen to cook with. Well not this place...it was fantastic. Jo even provided breakfast cereal, welcome Tassie chocky fudge, it had Wifi, heaps of DVDs and you could actually cook a meal in the kitchen. What a great place. Highly recommended!

As soon as we walked through the door, we felt at home! Everything was excellent-quality, clean, neat, and well thought-out. The view is spectacular..the chickens and rabbits made it lovely and homely. Jo was our invisible host, we knew she was there if we needed anything, but gave us our privacy at the same time. For children there would be no getting bored...hours of entertainment in the form of games, crafts, dvd's etc. I was astonished at how Jo has catered for everyone!It was the little things that made for a comfortable stay (like electric blankets, and all the ingredients to make gourmet muffins!!) Well done, and we would definitely come visit again

What a fantastic place to stay with children. My son spent most of the time when we were out asking to go back to the place on the hill so he could play with the toys. Clean, well located and everything you could possibly imagine and more. Thank you for having such a lovely place to stay.

Book this property! It is the best place we have ever stayed. Perfect location with beautiful views overlooking the river. Clean, neat, stylish accommodation with everything you may need. Great deli nearby too. Jo, the host, was so generous, leaving us a little note and ingredients to make muffins, plus heaps of info on local attractions and where to get food. Can't wait to go back :)

We can only echo the other reviews on this place. It was well located, clean and tidy and offered all of the home comforts that you'd require. Our 10-year old daughter had to be dragged out when we wanted to go anywhere as there was so much to do 'at home'. Watching the changing view from the lounge room over the period of a day was a highlight. Would definitely stay again when visiting Launceston. Thanks Jo.

We shopped around for affordable accommodation and came upon Forest rd. When we walked in we were greeted with a personal note. My daughter received one too by her bedside telling her where all the toys and crafts were. There was no end to the thoughtful touches at forest rd. Jo thought of everything. I mean everything. Perfect for family and perfect for couples. Great view etc. etc. etc.

Room Tip: Kids will Love the bunnies and chickens.

We have not stopped raving about this property since we got home. The view is fantastic, the place has everything you need (and we mean EVERYTHING) and Jo made us feel very welcome. The muffins and the toys were perfect for our two young boys and we loved our stay. Can't recommend it highly enough.
